questions about vaulting?

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, wasn't really sure where else it would go?

So I know next to nothing about vaulting, other than what I have seen on youtube and what I have heard. Youtube? It looks neat. What I have heard? It's actually really bad for the horse. So is this true? Is it really that bad for the horse? I have heard horror stories about how bad it can be for the horse's back and legs.

Why I ask is that I had a lady email me interested in doing a partial lease on my mare, only 2 or 3 days a week. She is actually a trainer near me and coaches younger children for vaulting, as well as does clinics and competes internationally. So far so good! I have always been interested in vaulting, however I just do not want to potentially harm my mare. The lady does think that my mare would be a good candidate for this, and since it would only be approx. 2 days a week I still keep her on property, still do my own thing with her, I can still have my own trainer come in and work her, etc etc. Works for every body.

Basically though ...is vaulting bad for the horse? I did a google search and honestly could find nothing bad about it (I am only going by what I heard from friends of friends in the past), only that the horse should be of proper conformation and rider/owner/whatever should be taking necessary precautions such as polos to protect legs/giving breaks often/what have you.
